SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers are ready for some serious chatter coming from that brash, big-talking Seattle secondary.
So far, 49ers fullback Bruce Miller insists Richard Sherman and the playoff-bound Seahawks (11-1) have more than earned the right to speak up on the field. Yet the way emotions tend to run higher than usual in this heated NFC West, Miller, tight end Vernon Davis and their teammates are guarding against getting so hyped up it hurts the cause.
The reigning NFC champion Niners (8-4) still have plenty of work to do this month to secure their own playoff positioning, and a win against Seattle would help.
Enough of the 49ers caught glimpses of Seattle's Monday night rout of New Orleans to know a tall task awaits them this weekend.
